My Holiday | P&O Cruises (2024)

Our free and convenient online planner makes life on board a breeze

My Holiday is your personal on-board planner. It’s free, optional and easy-to-use with your smartphone or tablet (no internet access or mobile data is needed), and it helps you tailor your experiences and manage your bookings and on-board account in one place.

The benefit of using My Holiday is that it guarantees your bookings on the dates and times that suit you best. With so much on offer you can sit back and relax, knowing everything is taken care of, leaving you free to make the most of your time on board.

Using My Holiday is entirely your choice and there are alternative options available if you prefer not to use it. However, on some ships we think you’ll find it much easier to plan your dining, activities, and entertainment if you use My Holiday.
